Dozens of victims of the worst forest fires in Portugal’s history did not get the help they needed.

The national civil protection authority, the ANPC is blaming a breakdown in communication.

The ANPC has handed its “black-box” data to the government.

Portugal’s minister for internal affairs wants an independent investigation.

At least 84 people died and more than 200 were injured during the fires, which are the worst in Europe for the last decade.

More than 53,000 hectares of forest were lost in four days.
